3. Christmas Wreath

If you need one more five-minute craft DIY, here it is. Christmas decorations are never complete without a wreath. Why spend a fortune or waste hours on art and craft if you can do it in five minutes? This craft is kids’ favorite because it is one of the easiest crafts for kids.

Materials Required

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Compass
  • Artificial pine leaves
  • Artificial fruits
  • Glue

Methodology

  1. Draw two circles two inches apart on the cardboard and cut through the lines with scissors. Now we have the ring of the wreath.

2. Cut the artificial pine leaves and paste the pieces on the ring as shown in the picture.

3. Now the rim of the wreath is ready. The next step is to decorate the wreath. Take the artificial fruits and paste them on the leaves. Make sure the fruits are not stuck to the cardboard.

4. Here we go! The wreath is ready to adorn your house. Hang it near the Christmas tree or on your door as shown in the picture. Can you see the excitement of the little one there!
